According to reports, the driver of a Toyota SUV collided with a Lincoln SUV while traveling through the intersection of Mattis and Bradley avenues. The crash resulted in the death of the driver of the Toyota SUV and serious injuries to the driver and passanger of the Lincoln SUV. Both the driver and passenger were taken to a local hospital and Police have reported that their condition was serious but stable. According to the preliminary investigation, the SUVs met at the intersection of Bradley and Mattis as one was traveling eastbound on Bradley and the other was traveling southbound on Mattis.
